The king of Assyria will not attack Jerusalem (2 Kings 19:32-19:34)

“Therefore thus says Yahweh concerning the king of Assyria.

‘He shall not come into this city,

He shall not shoot an arrow there,

He shall not come before it with a shield,

He shall not cast up a siege ramp against it.

By the way that he came,

By the same he shall return.

He shall not come into this city.

I will defend this city to save it,

For my own sake and

For the sake of my servant David.’”

In a clear statement without ambiguity, the king of Assyria will not come into Jerusalem. He will not shoot an arrow or cast a siege ramp. He will return home. Yahweh will defend this city. He will save it for the sake of David and for himself. Yahweh will not let Jerusalem fall.
